Margaret River, Indijup natural spa & Valley of the Giants
November 6th 2019th:
We checked the long list of places we still had to see, and decided to go with Indijup Natural Spa, as it was on our way to some wine tasting in famous Margaret River region. As its name says it all, it is a natural rock pool, hidden behind the Indian Ocean and protected by high strong rocks. It was not very crowded when we went, though some people were already relaxing in the natural pool. We could see the huge waves crashing actively behind the rocks, creating nice and smooth cascades falling down the boulders.
After a short time at Indijup, we hit the road toward Margaret River and start our wine tasting tour. First stop is Stormflower Vineyard, an organic winery making handcrafted unique wines. They offer Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Chenin Blanc vines and have specific and delightful wines.
Second spot is Fraser Gallop, crafting and serving some of the best wines in the world. Other remarkable local vineyards in Margaret River that caught our special attention were Snake + Herring, Windance Estate and much more! Following that interesting tour, we came along the Cape Lavender tea house, where we tasted a rich and savory lavender ice cream, surrounded by beautiful lavender landscape scenery.
To summarize, Margaret River reminded us of South of France in its landscapes, and with a mix of Australian culture and weather. A perfect combo to absolute excellence.

We spend the day at the Valley of the Giants, an Australian iconic tree top walk, 40 metres high in the canopy of the ancient tingle forest
On the way back, we stopped at the best camp spot ever, the Walpole rest area, that features the best activities: a giant trampoline, a lake, and dozens of kangaroos playing around.
Finally, last day, we went to Hamelin Bay, a gorgeous white sand beach where we stayed for almost 5 hours in the water, swimming with sting rays coming to have fun with us!
